2016 A.C.E Award Recipient Named

Mackezie Burgei was awarded our 2016 A.C.E Award. She has had a very interesting if not difficult life so far. However, she has not let this get into her way as far as her education is concerned. In her Freshman year she had all "Fs". This was partially due to her personal background. However, currently she is holding straight "As". She said she is holding perfect attendance in school as she has never missed a day of school during her whole school career. She plans on making the world a better place, she plans on helping homeless people. Since she was 13 she enjoyed going to church and helping and feeding the homeless. In 2015 she had the opportunity to go to Chicago and volunteer at the Chicago women's shelter. There she helped and says she had her eyes opened to the need. She values becoming a better person and hopes to go to more school and continuing to help people.

What We Can Do to Help,  Bring your donation items to our Meetings

Child Abuse Prevention became the National Project of Exchange Clubs in 1979. Since that time, Exchange Clubs across the nation have become involved in child abuse prevention efforts in a variety of ways. Some of their many projects include establishing Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention Centers and supporting affiliate programs (agencies providing child abuse prevention services but not complying with the program or organizational requirements for an Exchange Club Center).
